Have you tried installing the latest graphics card drivers?

There is a program available that will allow you to remove all traces of old nVidia drivers thus allowing for a clean install and removal of any corrupt registry entries that may be causing problems, it's called Detonator Destroyer, see click here .

Run this and then install the latest drivers for your card from the nVidia site.

Do you have the Mobo chipset drivers installed?

  LivEviL 08:16 05 Dec 2005

i think so its a microsoft corp one! i pressed update driver and it gave me an option of 4-two were v4.2 summin another was v5.summin(and said microsoft corp by it) and the other was v8 summin i clicked on v8 and it done nothing so i went back and installed 5-it then asked me to put the xp disc in and then it worked but i have a feeling that when i restart it will go back to haveing a problem again!

What is the make and model of your motherboard? If it has a VIA chipset, for instance, it is best to install the drivers supplied by VIA on their website, XP does have drivers included but they are usually not as good, at least that seems to be the case with VIA chipsets anyway.

Come back with more details about your Mobo and hopefully we can steer you towards the correct drivers as they will also have an effect on how your AGP graphics card works as well.

In other words, install mobo chipset drivers, reboot and install video card drivers.
